  • Description

    AFTER THE BLOODY BATTLES BETWEEN UNITED STATES TROOPS AND PANAMANIAN RIOTERS, AN UNEASY CALM HAS DESCENDED ALONG THE CANAL ZONE BORDER. IT COMES WITH THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT THE UNITED STATES AND PANAMA HAVE AGREED TO RESUME DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS "AS SOON AS POSSIBLE", AND BEGIN DISCUSSION 30 DAYS AFTER THEY ARE RESUMED ON PROBLEMS OF MUTUAL CONCERN.

    THE ANNOUNCEMENT WAS MADE BY THE INTER-AMERICAN PEACE COMMITTEE - THE ORGANISATION OF AMERICAN STATES MISSION - WHICH HAS BEEN WORKING TO REACH AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES. THE WORDING OF THE ANNOUNCEMENT DID NOT SPECIFY THAT THE PANAMA CANAL TREATY, WHICH THE PANAMANIANS HAVE INSISTED SHOULD BE REVIEWED, WILL BE A SUBJECT FOR THE DISCUSSIONS. NEVERTHELESS IT IS BOUND TO BE CONSIDERED UNDER MATTERS OF MUTUAL CONCERN.

    THE COMMITTEE'S ANNOUNCEMENT NOTED WITH SATISFACTION THE RE-ESTABLISHMENT OF PEACE - AN INDISPENSABLE CONDITION FOR UNDERSTANDING AND NEGOTIATION. THE DISCUSSIONS WILL BE CARRIED ON BY REPRESENTATIVES WITH SUFFICIENT POWERS TO DEAL WITH ALL EXISTING MATTERS WHICH MAY AFFECT RELATIONS BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES.

    (PANAMA FIRST 'SUSPENDED', THEN BROKE OFF DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH THE UNITED STATES LAST WEEK, AFTER CHARGING THE AMERICANS WITH 'AGGRESSION' AND THE SHOOTING OF PANAMANIANS IN THE CANAL ZONE. IN THE RECENT FIGHTING FOUR AMERICANS AND ABOUT 20 PANAMANIANS WERE KILLED.)
